Humanity is at an impasse, and the gods are through playing games… almost. Humans have one last chance at avoiding utter destruction and are thus tasked with proving themselves worthy of survival in the Ragnarok battles! To find out how we fare, you’ll need to check out the Record of Ragnarok anime, now available on Blu-ray in Record of Ragnarok: The Complete First Season. 

Believe it or not, there is precedence for such a dire situation. It turns out the Gods’ Council assembles once a millennium to decide humanity’s fate, but this time around they’ve deemed mankind’s seven million years of history to be worthy of eradication. It would seem our fate is sealed, but the valkyrie Brunhilde proposes the tournament of Ragnarok, in which humanity may be spared if they can overcome one major obstacle.

That obstacle? Besting the gods in seven out of thirteen matches! Humanity is going to need some seriously strong representatives if there’s any hope of making it through these battles in one piece, and watching them all step up to the plate is half the fun of this heavy-hitting battle anime based on the manga written by Shinya Umemura and Takumi Fukui and illustrated by Ajichika. 

Taking this battle home will net you all 12 episodes of the first season in both Japanese and English along with special features that include a poster, art gallery, clean versions of the opening and ending videos and the first chapter of the manga. Get the intense battles going and order your copy of Record of Ragnarok: The Complete First Season on Blu-ray and digital today.
